The flavor of this fluffy omelet is enhanced by the Vegetable-Cheese Sauce.


Combine tapioca, salt, pepper, and milk in saucepan. Bring to full boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add butter or margarine. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. Beat egg whites stiff, but not dry; beat yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Add beaten yolks to tapioca mixture; mix well; fold into beaten egg whites. Turn into hot, well-greased 10-inch skillet or omelet pan. Cook over low heat 3 minutes. Bake at 350┬░ for 15 minutes. Make Vegetable-Cheese sauce (see recipe) while omelet is baking. Makes 6 servings.
